Busey's Commercial Banking Leadership Development Program (CBLDP) launched June, 2017. Throughout the duration of the program, candidates are immersed in Busey's culture and exposed to all areas of the organization--from personal, business and wealth management products and services to the teams and processes that support these offerings. Through the partnership between Busey's Commercial/Credit leadership and Associate Development team, we've developed a robust 2-year curriculum comprised of hands-on commercial & credit training, leadership development opportunities and thorough exposure to all facets of Busey. Through this intentional program we aim to grow talent that is uniquely poised to transition into careers within commercial banking.
Once accepted into the CBLDP, the program participants will develop a strong foundation in commercial banking and credit analysis through an accelerated technical, sales, and leadership curriculum. The Commercial Banking Analysts focus on enhancing skills by combining formal credit and sales training with hands-on business application.
